White Dishes above my Cabinets

This is the "before" picture.  It doesn't look too bad, actually.  But a few months ago, it bugged me and I took everything down.

Everything except for that basket in the corner.  It took a lot of effort to maneuver that $2 garage sale basket off of the shelf.    Once it was off, I left the top completely bare for a while while I thought about it. 

I started collecting pitchers to fill that space above the cabinets.  All of these  were from garage sales or the good will for less than $3 each.  That weird green speckled one was just $1!  I looked for different shapes without worrying about the pattern and colors of the pitchers.  I wasn't sad to see spray paint cover that rooster, but I had second thoughts about the pretty flower one.

For now, I like the look of all white pitchers up there.   I can't use them for anything but decorations now that they are spray painted, but I'm okay with that.  

 I am still on the look out for 6 or more pitchers/watering cans/ teapots for the other wall of cabinets, and I'm trying to enjoy the process of hunting down these cheap, paint-able objects.
